Dating back c. 1861, Mount Pleasant Villas consists of four semi-detached double fronted Victorian residences set on an elevated site off the Upper Dargle Road in Bray. All four properties are accessed from a private lane and No. 1 is the first on the right. Approached via steps from the parking bay, one is immediately drawn to the attractive façade of the property. Internally, all original features are still intact to include flooring, doors, high ceilings, fireplaces, picture rails, window shutters, ornate ceiling plasterwork, center roses, and an archway off the landing. Purchased by the current owner in 2007, the property underwent substantial renovation work shortly after occupation. These upgrades accompanied with the tasteful décor and original features truly make this a unique period dwelling. Due to the elevation, the property has a vantage point commanding sweeping views above the rooftops and steeples of Bray Town and beyond to Bray Head. In addition, the property is further complemented by a self-contained unit on the ground floor return which falls under the rent-a-room scheme, generating a non-taxable income of €14,000 per annum. Alternatively, this would be an ideal space for a mature child or an accompanying parent. No. 1 is a bright and spacious house with elegant room proportions akin to the Victorian era laid out over two floors with a two storey return element to the rear. The total footprint measures 218sqm / 2,347sqft approx. Passing through the front door, the inviting entrance hall comprises hardwood flooring, radiator cover, decorative and ornate ceiling coving & center rose, and beneath the stairs is a W.C. Immediately to the right is the impressive bay windowed drawing room featuring an original door, floorboards, decorative ceiling coving & center rose, and an open fire with marble mantle. It is worth noting that the attractive sash windows were replaced with double glazing in 2011 and this is a common theme throughout. To the left of the corridor, the living room mirrors the drawing room in terms of features except for the bay window. The fireplace here contains a solid fuel wrought iron stove with tiled hearth and inset. Interconnecting doors lead through to the kitchen which overlooks the private rear garden and is fitted with high gloss wall & eye level units and an integrated electric range. Returning to the hall, at the end of the corridor there is a compact utility room to the left and a family room / fourth bedroom to the right. This versatile room includes carpeted flooring, ceiling coving, and picture rail. Rising up the stairs, the dual aspect landing is naturally bright and incorporates and original banisters, stain glass sash window, and a beautiful redbrick arch with decorative plasterwork. On the first floor, to the front of the property, are two double bedrooms. Like the reception rooms, both bedrooms resemble one another in terms of original features and each gain from an en-suite shower room. The principal bedroom has the comfort of a dressing room and benefits from a dual aspect, and a pleasant view of Bray Head. On the first-floor return there is another double bedroom and a bathroom with traditional suite. Externally, there are large gardens to the front and side while to the rear there is a smaller secluded garden. The elevated garden to the front and side is due south and screened by a plethora of mature hedging, shrubbery, plants, and colorful flowers, providing total privacy, peace and seclusion while also availing of the surrounding views from certain areas. This space is predominantly laid with loose stones and there are four feature raised circular lawns along with two patio areas. Two sheds cater for additional storage. It is worth mentioning that there is an abundance of wildlife, including hedgehogs, foxes, frogs, and butterflies at various stages throughout the year. Off the side garden, sliding doors along the gable wall lead into the self-contained unit, offering an open plan living/kitchen/diner, bedroom, and shower room. The location is ideal, being just a short distance from all amenities including Castle Street Shopping Centre and Bray’s Main Street, both offering a selection of shops and eateries and for arts lovers there is the Mermaid Theatre and Signal Arts Centre. The Peoples Park with river boardwalk is nearby, not to mention the renowned promenade and seafront, within 1.5km offering an array of cafes, restaurants, and ice cream parlours, along with wonderful seaside walks, including the famous Cliff walk to Greystones. For commuters, there is no shortage of transport options including bus routes 45A, 84, 145, 155 and the Aircoach along with the 185-feeder bus to Bray Dart which runs the length of the Upper Dargle Road. In addition, the N11/M50 is accessible in a matter of minutes. Bray plays host to a number of highly regarded primary and secondary schools, as well as a wide variety of sporting facilities including sailing, rowing, tennis, horse riding, hockey, soccer and GAA to name but a few.
